POWER UNIT - MULTIPLE ENGINE REMOVAL - AND RUN-IN INSTRUCTIONS
LOCATION / ITEM
e. Lubrication Fittings.
Fill all the grease cups and lubricate all fittings with all purpose grease.
Apply lubricating oil to the throttle
linkage and other moving parts and fill the hinged cap oilers with a hand oiler.
Check the battery; the top should be clean and dry, the terminals tight and protected with a coat of petroleum
jelly and the electrolyte must be at the proper level.
When necessary, check the battery with a hydrometer; the reading should be 1.265 or
higher. However, hydrometer readings should always be corrected for the temperature
of the electrolyte.
Disengage the clutch or clutches.
h. Initial Engine Start (Electric).
Start an engine equipped with an electric starting motor as follows: Make sure the emergency stop is pushed all
the way in, then set the throttle in the IDLE position. Press the starting motor switch firmly. If the engine fails to start
within 30 seconds, release the starting switch and allow the starting motor to cool a few minutes before trying again. If
the engine fails to start after four attempts, an inspection should be made to determine the cause.
On twin units, move the master throttle lever to "IDLE" and engage cranking motors, one at a time.
To prevent serious damage to the starter, if the engine does not start,
do not press the starter switch again while the starter motor is running.
